A buddy and I pulled a 66 bronco from atlanta to arkansas with his new 6.2 gas dually. Truck performed fine, I was uncomfortable with the 6K sustained hill climbs. The motor with the 6 speed auto worked good except the auto was forever hunting for the gear it wanted to be in. I have a 2000 7.3 and it would of pulled the load up the same hills without all the 6k rpm and multiple gear downshifts needed to sustain 70 MPH. Now to add the hurt. The truck never got over 8 MPG when it was pulling. Hills or no hills the gas milage sucked My 7.3 would of got about 13MPG pulling the same load. He just could not bring himself to buy another diesel, is what he told me. ( 6.0 victim) " It was either buy the gas Ford or switch to a chevy" it what he said to me. He added " I don't like chevy so I will stick with my fords". Clearly still a ford person finding himself with limited PROVEN options on engines. The 6.2 sucks for pulling. It will get around 12 on the HWY unloaded.

Pretty good power....the work truck ive driven has gotten almost 18mpg with mixed driving. this is with a utility bed loaded won with 20 or so batteries. The transmission seems to be the issue at hand for now. Been to the dealer 4 times and it's a 2011 with 50k miles on it.

Seen a bunch of them out here as many people avoid diesels because of the extreme cold weather. If you're out in the oil fields on on a jobsite all day and can't plug in, the gasser's got a better chance of firing up when it's -20F...

I hear they're ok, but we'll see when they get a little older. Many guys go for the V10 anyway...

Had one at work last summer. CC/LB F-350 4x4. I never really drove it much (it was somebody else's truck)...it had more power than traction taking off on wet grass, but that's not saying much.

Dashboard computer said 14.2 mpg on the factory all-terrains (and 13.8 on Cooper Discoverer M+S), virtually empty, but with a cap and a big light bar- mostly rural highway miles, but driven by a guy who knew he had a fleet gas-card. No issues in the first 35k miles.

had a 2010 F350 at work last summer, 4x4 extra cab with a utlity bed, got maybe 12 to 14, still under 5k on odometer. I liked it more than most of the guys, my biggest complaint is the piss poor turning radius. oh, and we ran Goodyear mudterrains, if it matters. pretty sure this was a 6.2L even though the boss said it was a v10, lol.

The 6.2 is a new V-8. The V-10s were 6.8s.

Lets not forget, a dually Super Duty is probably at least 7000 lbs. It takes a lot of fuel to make 400 hp and move that much weight. (As gas engines go anyways, oh, and it doesn`t cost $9000).

And just to put it out there, a friend of mine hauls scrap, firewood, and boughs for a living. He but a new 2011 Chevy 3500, regular cab, 4x4 with 4.10s and a 6.0 gas engine. He averages about 11 mpg. (And cries!).

6.2L vs. 6.7L

Well a lot of these trucks are having transmission issues with the new 6 speed trans, wether its a 6.7l diesel or 6.2l gas engine. I have the gas and it spends a lot of time at the dealer. No known fix as of yet.

The diesel yields better gas mileage, however you pay more for oil and filters, as it takes more then twice the capacity of oil, and diesel filters are more expensive, got to buy DEF fluid, and diesel fuel is more expensive today, so id say unless you are doing 30K miles a year in your truck, or always towing a large load, it doesn't matter that much. More maintenance on diesels, and more expensive to repair, and more things to go wrong, gasser is less maintenance and cheaper to repair and maintain.

But id read up on forums about the transmission issues, HARD AND ABRUPT SHIFTS, SHIFT FLARES, NEAUTRAL IN BETWEEN GEARS, DELAYED REVERSE, JERKS, ETC. This is a big problem for thousands of ford customers right now, and no solution as of yet!

Other issues, weak sound system, the previous adiophile and new sony (2013+) systems are WAY better, the 2011-2012 is weak! No dual alternators or second battery in gasser. Oviously half the torque in gasser, but this only comes into play when you seriously work the truck! Heavy towing loads etc. And due to the double torque in the diesel, you wear tires twice as fast.
